Volunteers from Duke
University, area Rotary Clubs and Duke School packaged 106,000 meals on Jan. 21
as part of the region’s commemoration of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
The volunteers gathered at the
Duke School. The food packages will be distributed by the Inter-Faith Food
Shuttle and their partner agencies working to end hunger in seven counties.
In addition, non-perishable items were collected at check-in for donation to the Durham Tech and N.C. Central University food pantries. View photos here.
